    As I had stated in my other reply, mine is a 2 1/2" bore and does just dandy with my heavy duty use (abuse?) but it is the rod diameter that is more important. A 2" bore or even a 1" bore would be plenty of hydraulics as long as the rod is strong enough not to bend or break, especially if you use a long stroke cylinder and operate it extended out alot. My cylinder has an 8" stroke and I'll bet I don't have it extended out much over 5" 95% of the time for all implements. Only on rare occasion have I fully extended it with the boxblade to get some real serious tilt for various reasons and this is where a smaller rod would be likely to bend or break. The only implement I have that I can't use this toplink on is my MF 2 bottom plow - It requires a much longer toplink and I don't plow enough to warrant making another cylinder up just for it.

    Please keep in mind that the offer stands for as long as the hydraulic is available. Might be a week or two, could be years, hard to tell.

    Now I might need another smaller favor from you someday... like some leftover blue paint maybe???... but no way I'm gonna accept outright charity on anything like this when it comes to my business. It's just not right.

    I do appreciate your serious generosity, but I'll pass on this one.

    Received my hydraulic top link from Carter and Carter. It was easy to install and works like a dream. I don't know why I waited so long to make this investment.

    Next get the side link and you will be all set.

    Yeah, I agree with Brian.
    Better yet, get two hydraulic side links (although one will do). Once you find how easy your new Top link makes life, you'll want the same ease of adjustment for the side links. Not just for working the implements, but it makes hook up much easier too.

    It never really ends... does it? There is always one thing more to buy!

    This is prolly a stupid question because I don't even have my tractor yet (tomorrow, unless some other craziness happens). But how are the top links controlled? Is there a lever back there somewhere. The blue pic (Compact1) above is the one I'm looking at.

    Don't get me wrong, I know I need one, and a couple of side ones too, and at least one each of all implements made
